Book Description

Trail of 32 by Paul Rega

The Indie Book of the Day for 6th of February, 2014!

Genre: Travel, Memoir

THE ASTONISHING, TRUE STORY of a group of thirty-two boys and leaders who accomplished an amazing feat in 1972, when they rode their bicycles from Wood Dale, Illinois to Jacksonville, Florida.

Baby boomers of all ages as well as Scouts, past and present will marvel over this amazing true story of courage, conquest, and adventure. Fans of Stand By Me will applaud this tale of heroism and childhood in a simpler time.

The 1960’s and early 70’s were a simpler time–a common sense two-pedal world with realistic adventures, and everyday heroes. In the summer of 1972, an innocence was lost when twenty-six young boys in a small rural town set out to accomplish something bigger than themselves. Their journey of nearly 1,400 miles would take them through eight states, crossing over the Great Smoky Mountains. It was a tremendous achievement–one that would be hailed as the longest organized bike hike in the history of Scouting.
